Deep Surface Membrane Morphologies. Deep Surface Membrane MorphologiesComputational Methods for Generating the Behaviour of Tension-Active Systems Materiality is a critical characteristic in defining an architecture as a system – a system in structural stability, energy modulation, and spatiality.

Deep Surface Membrane Morphologies

It therefore stands that it should be pursued as an initial parameter of the process of design generation. The core of this seminar will look at the use of computation to simulate and visualize fundamental material and physical properties. This will be addressed int the experimentation with integrated tensionactive cable-net and membrane systems. The methods for experimentation will involve the use of purpose-built algorithms in Rhino and Processing, tuned to allow for rapid yet approximate form generation, in coordination with precisely constructed physical models. Seminar will be coordinated with both a RhinoScript and Processing workshop. Masterplan & Train Station. Projects - Studio Lynn, Vienna. P i n u p s p a c e. Analog Generative System archive at works-thoughts. The inaugural project of UCLA’s MArchI program explores the development of generative systems though tectonic assemblies of modular components. Paramount to this process is a differentiation between top-down and bottom up systems. More specifically, emergent formal typologies result from the physical properties of the module and connection variants as opposed to a ‘master plan’ envisioning the result. Tactically, systems may be considered either derivative or generative. In each case, a set of rules renders a specific formal grammar or syntax. Derivative systems in architecture are often used to subdivide complex geometries into developable units. This project is generative.

The core unit in my proposal is a triad with six distinct connection points. Clusters may be joined into higher ordered systems of super-clusters. This composition creates a regular two-dimensional matrix. This composition is regulated by an effort to maintain continuity of curvature between unit clusters. Trabajamos para ella ! Update on minimal spanning trees videos are in real-time.use of BOOST c++ template graph libraries within Maya plug-in, towards computing the euclidean minimal spanning tree of a set of points.The boost libraries implements both the Prim and Kruskal algorithm to compute the tree.

Further, variation of the implementation is available as the Dijkstra shortest route algorithm The lower video shows amateur attempts at implementing the algorithm using in c++ (left), in MEL (left) and a hybrid (middle). The intention was always to achieve real time interaction, for the algorithm is useful towards path/route finding , calculating walking distances in a street network a la google maps etc. Evidently, none of the hack attempts were close to being real-time as opposed using the BOOST implementation that enables this. Boost also includes other handy implementations to deal with graphs, and trees,statistical distributions et al. The data is visualised using the blindDataShader plug-in. Gallery. LEGil Design. Nss.

Cymatica The Wave Lattice Approach to Synchronized Formal Proportion Thesis Student: Benlloyd Goldstein Advisors: Hernan Diaz-Alonso , Benjamin Bratton “Architecture is the frozen music; music is the flowing architecture…” - Goethe Cymatica is an architectural thesis investigation exploring the synthesis of spatial proportion and form generated from nonlinear wave input. // Harmonic Proportion// Palladio’s harmonic proposals were focused on extracting the whole intervals of the classical music octave as a system to generate architectural proportion. // Waves // Waves are a fundamental tectonic element of our reality. // Cymatic Language // Hans Jenny explored cymatics in his 1967 book, Kymatik (translated Cymatics).


Cymatica proposes this architectural instrument to help us understand better the inherent spatial relationships and properties wave dynamics express when applied to the constraints of different topological identities, not just physical materials.
